TROUBLE WITH PARSNIPS is the first book in the Seven Kingdoms Fairy Tale series. 300 pgs.
A Story About the Magic of Speaking Up: Gail Carson Levine’s classic Ella Enchanted meets The King’s Speech.
It's her 14th try at getting a name, and the nameless princess of Cochem can't get a word in edgewise.
Until she finally grabs her royal parents' attention. *cough* (500 goldfish, long story.)
Christening invitations flutter off to the Seven Kingdoms—only ten years late.
But then the Blackfly Queen strides into the feasting hall . . . just as the oh-so-tasty parsnip fries run out.
Arrows fly. Tempers flare.
Another christening goes up in smoke!
Only this time, her fairy godmother makes everything worse. The princess has 15 days to make a name for herself at the Speech Tournament. Or she'll be invisible for life!
For ages 9 to 12, this Seven Kingdoms Fairy Tale will appeal to fans of Jean Ferris' Once Upon a Marigold, Jacqueline Davies' The Lemonade Wars, and E.G. Foley's The Gryphon Chronicles.
